Which of the following alkyl halides undergoes hydrolysis with aqueous $$KOH$$ at the fastest rate?
The correct option is D $$CH_3CH_2CH(Br)CH_3$$
Aqueous $$KOH$$ is alkaline in nature. These hydroxide ions act as a strong nucleophile and replace the halogen atom in an alkyl halide. This results in the formation of alcohol molecules. Therefore option D is correct.
